`Perfect, kind, hilarious and persuasive' Lena Dunham `I am a fat person and I love my body.

I feel lucky to be able to say that - it has taken a lot of work and a lot of time.

I want to tell you what I have learned and how I got here.' In Happy Fat, comedian Sofie Hagen shares how she removed fatphobic influences from her daily life and found self-acceptance in a world where judgement and discrimination are rife. From shame and sex to airplane seats, love and getting stuck in public toilets, Sofie provides practical tips for readers - drawing wisdom from other Fat Liberation champions along the way. Part memoir, part social commentary, Happy Fat is a funny, angry and impassioned look at how taking up space in a culture that is desperate to reduce you can be radical, emboldening and life-changing.
